So what happened to my collages today ? I went out in the rain to look at my vegetables and saw that blight had hit my tomato plants . So, there I was pulling out the plants and collecting the tomatoes . I also found that lunch was growing in the grass - yes, field mushrooms. So after cutting up everything for the chutney which included plums and some ginger I got lunch. The mushrooms were only a few, but wonderful to eat fried with a little butter and some home grown garlic. Luckily I did have some time not cooking and have finished most of the sewing on another bag using linen which I'd dyed a lovely dove grey.
I live in a late 18th century farmhouse or longere
with my husband .
I taught Art in England for over 35 years and have always done my own work.
We moved to France over 12 years ago and and continue to work on the renovation of the house and making the garden. I make many things out of old textiles and also sell vintage sheets etc.
I have had over 6 exhibitions of my art work since living here and in the summer manage a small art gallery in a nearby village. I make home made cards and other ephemera.
